ICC Test Rankings: Joe Root Reclaims Top Spot; Rohit Overtakes Virat

Dubai: England captain Joe Root is back at the top spot in the batsmen’s chart, according to the latest ICC Men’s Test Player Rankings. Root returned to the numero uno spot after a gap of nearly six years thanks to his sublime form in the ongoing World Test Championship series against India.

India opener Rohit Sharma has overtaken skipper Virat Kohli to be India’s top-ranked Test batsman. Sharma ranked 54th in October 2019, made into the top five for the first time.

The opener’s 19 and 59 lifted him one place to a career-best fifth position, seven rating points more than Kohli’s aggregate of 773.

However, the 30-year-old Root had begun the series at No. 5 but his 507 runs in three Tests helped him surpass Virat Kohli, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith and New Zealand captain Kane Williamson.

The last time Root was No.1 was in December 2015 before being displaced by Williamson, with Kohli and Smith also reaching the coveted spot since.
